Ordering Information: Lynda.com offers some other licensing options that may be used for University purposes.

lyndaKiosk - A department contracts directly with Lynda.com to license one device (by static IP address). This does not allow for individual profiles. Pricing starts at $1200/year/device with discounts for 10 or more devices.

lyndaPro - A department contracts directly with Lynda.com to cover named individuals. Pricing starts at $350/person/year with discounts for more than 5 individuals.

Bulk Activation Account - This is a program being developed by lynda.com to replace the lynda classroom option. Currently the program offers access for students to all of the lynda.com training material. The instructor would work directly with lynda.com and purchase accounts for the students. Accounts are valid for up to six months at $30/month/student. This program does NOT allow an administrator console. The administrator console is available only with lyndaPro accounts (see above).
